Life

Somtimes life can really throw you a curve ball. One you do not quite expect, but it is there, and only there because you tried to forget about it.

Or you procrastinated and now it came back to bite you in the behind.

Then God shows you a bit of sunshine.

Even though, I fail as a wife and a mother. I fail as a sister in Christ. God still shows me how much he loves me.

My husband takes our hard hitting news with an ok, life goes on and we will be fine. While I sit there in tears apologizing.

I get an ” I love you mom” from the same son I just scolded in anger a few moments ago.

So even though I am scared, and I have no idea how we are going to weather this new development in our lives, God is still on the throne, and is still sending me a bit of sunshine. Our Lord heals before the sun goes down if we put our faith in Him. We by ourselves can not do a thing.

  Luke 4:40   Now when the sun was setting, all they that had any sick with divers diseases brought them unto him; and he laid his hands on every one of them, and healed them.

Even after the rain, the sun will shine again. God brings us that beacon for us.

Sun is a natural way to get some vitamin D. Without that essential vitamin, we feel

  • Muscle pain
  • Sudden loss of muscle strength
  • Constant bone pains
  • Low energy / Moodless

It can affect many area’s of our lives. Anyways,

We need the sun and the Son in our lives. I am so thankful to know that I have a home in heaven and that Jesus is there to hold my hand or even carry me.

One night a man had a dream. He dreamed
he was walking along the beach with the LORD.


Across the sky flashed scenes from his life.
For each scene he noticed two sets of
footprints in the sand: one belonging
to him, and the other to the LORD.

When the last scene of his life flashed before him,
he looked back at the footprints in the sand.


He noticed that many times along the path of
his life there was only one set of footprints.

He also noticed that it happened at the very
lowest and saddest times in his life.


This really bothered him and he
questioned the LORD about it:


“LORD, you said that once I decided to follow
you, you’d walk with me all the way.
But I have noticed that during the most
troublesome times in my life,
there is only one set of footprints.
I don’t understand why when
I needed you most you would leave me.”

The LORD replied:


“My son, my precious child,
I love you and I would never leave you.
During your times of trial and suffering,
when you see only one set of footprints,
it was then that I carried you.”
